LADIES GOLF AT BINGLEY ST IVES
The Ladies Section is thriving, friendly and inclusive with over 60 members. We welcome players with all levels of interest and experience, from those new to golf to scratch golfers, those who wish to play competitively and those who are simply looking for social golf. We encourage all ladies to play with different members each week, helping us to get to know each other and building and maintaining our friendly and welcoming Section.
In addition to golf competitions, we also run social events allowing you to make the most of your membership, whether you’re looking to meet new people, support our annual charities, or simply to improve your golfing knowledge. Examples include:
- Christmas Party Night
- Friday “Nine and Wine” Evenings

LADIES NEWS – WOMEN IN GOLF CHARTER
Bingley St Ives Golf Club has been accepted as a registered signatory to the Women in Golf Charter promoted by the R&A and England Golf. To gain this recognition the Club formulated and set out a number of Charter commitments to ensure the Club makes a positive contribution to a change in golf where we create a more inclusive culture and encourage more women and girls not just to take part but also to thrive in the game. The Club has a appointed Charter Champion, Lisa Foster to be the face of our campaign. CLICK HERE TO VISIT OUR WOMEN IN GOLF CHARTER PAGE where you can read our Charter commitments which are also displayed on the noticeboards in the ladies locker room and the main clubhouse corridor along with our official certificate and congratulatory letter from Jeremy Tomlinson CEO of England Golf.
Uniquely, our ladies’ competitions are held on a Sunday, allowing easier access for those who work or are in full time education. Prizes are awarded within each Handicap Division, with a trophy awarded to the overall winner in the more presitigious events. In addition to our Sunday competitions, many of our ladies take up the opportunities during the week to play competitive and social golf too.
Whilst many of our members simply enjoy our weekly competitions, charity events and social golf, we also run a number of teams within the Bradford and the Yorkshire Ladies Counties Golf Association (YLCGA) inter-club competitions catering for players of different handicaps. This year our teams include:
- Scratch team
- A Team
- White RoseTeam
- Bradford Evening League Team
- Bradford Evening League Foursomes
- Weekend League Team (or Alternative Day Player Team)
- Bradford Winter Foursomes Team
We also support and encourage those wishing to play at County or National level, either in Yorkshire Ladies events (http://www.ylcga.org.uk), the Yorkshire Veterans Ladies events (http://www.yvlga.org.uk) or regional and national competitions (see https://www.englandgolf.org)
